A Closed World takes on a tough social subject in game form

  • Mar 3, 2013

Here is the developer's summary:
"Have you ever been so frustrated, so fed up with where you are, that you just want to throw it all away and run off to somewhere new? In A Closed World you play as a young person who has decided to do exactly that. This console RPG-like game puts you in the shoes of a young resident of a village just outside a forest that everyone says is a place of no return."

A Closed World was a finalist at the IndieCade game conference in Culver City 2012. We had a chance to talk to the developers at the award show's red carpet event and were intrigued by this game that handles LBGT issues in a metaphorical way. 

Here is part of Daklights' review at IGR:
"Once in a while, a title appears that takes the chance to address the necessary and oftentimes more challenging social issues of everyday life. These are social issues that are often overlooked not only in games, but in the broader scope of popular entertainment media. A Closed World does this concisely and with a simplicity that resounded with me long after I played it. Although technically there is nothing too revolutionary on offer, the way that it handles its subject matter with interactive media captured my attention and imagination."
